It is quite a climb up from the streets below but well worth it to get the beautiful views over the bay below and the exterior of the palace. A must on a trip to Monaco

Witness the Changing of the Palace Guards at 11:55 AM precisely (everyday except during the Grand Prix weekend). The whole place is very nice, shops and restaurants around. You could spend a whole day here and not get bored. Awesome view of Monaco as well

This is a nice square but the highlight was seeing the changing of the guard. The guards are precise and interesting to watch. Highlight of my visit. Get there early to get a good spot.
